Client was driving home from the bar. On the ride home, a local Police Officer witnessed the Client's motor vehicle travel into the breakdown lane, cross over the double yellow line multiple times, and make a left-hand turn without signaling. The Officer initiated a motor vehicle stop. Immediately upon speaking with the Client the Officer detected a strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot and watery eyes, and mumbled speech.
